5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

A great tour especially going through downtown LA. Our driver, Kenneth, was very good. He was extremely knowledgeable and funny. He did a great job driving a bus in the LA traffic and provide his informative narration. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was a couple of stops at major points in downtown LA for photographs rather than having to try and snap through the bus window. I appreciate the extra time this would have added to the tour but this would add some additional value, to us, as tourists.

Fantastic tour with plenty of time in Santa Monica 1.5 hours and in Hollywood 3 hours. Would definitely recommend.

Allex, our driver/guide was a wealth of knowledge, especially about Hollywood celebrities and where to find them. Our free time during the day was well spent in our choice of the Farmers Market and Venice Beach.

Our bus driver Alex was fantastic. The best driver that I have ever had on a tour
picked up at the hotel on time and pointed out things of interest as we travel.
Always gave very clear instructions on what time the bus would return and where to find it.
The tour it's self was good. Although when we went to visit the Chinese Temple, it was closed as Hollywood had a premiere there that night so we couldn't get close.

This tour was very well and professionally coordinated. We had an issue with daylight savings in SoCal commencing and missed the original tour date. We contacted our tour was rebooked for the following day without any penalty. The driver for the tour - Alex, was very knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the tour. It was evident that Alex had done his research and was very insightful. The tour provided the options of stopping at Venus Beach or Santa Monica Pier. and the second part of the tour gave the choice of an hour at Farmers Market or three hours at Hollywood. We opted for the Farmers Market and after the hour, Alex picked us up and took us back to Hollywood, where we still managed over an hour to walk around Hollywood. We cannot not rate or thank enough for providing such a great tour. If you you want a detailed tour of LA, this is the tour to do. The only suggestion that I would advise of, is, ensure you have a cell phone, as if you are not at the designated pick up point during the tour, will try to contact you, incase you are running late, as they do not want to leave anyone behind.
Exceptional tour and well worth it.

Excellent tour would recommend. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the LuxBus depot to meet the tour bus although I would have preferred to be picked up from our hotel a little later as we ended up having to wait over an hour for the tour to start. Our driver Kenneth was excellent very imformative and a great sense of humour. We travelled to the coast first and you could choose to either visit Venice Beach or travel onto Santa Monica. From there the tour went onto Hollywood via Beverley Hills a short stop here would have been nice for photo opportunities. There was a three hour stop in Hollywood for sightseeing shopping etc and a chance to go to the Farmers Market if desired. On the return journey the tour dropped all passengers at their individual hotels rather than having to go via the Lux Bus depot which was much better.

A wonderful relaxed day outing. Highly informative - I learned a lot about LA that I would never have known otherwise, and saw some magical sites.

Excellent tour. Alex our driver was very knowledgeable about LA, Hollywood and Beverley Hills.
Enjoyed our time at Santa Monica beach even had time to have a turn on the big wheel on the pier. Only improvement we would suggest would be some more time at the Farmers market stop.
